Sandy Hook families: The weapon that binds us to San Bernardino
All the animosity towards the AR-15 is really misdirected. The AR-15 is an extremely good rifle for just about anything you can use a rifle for; whether your intentions are innocent or not.
An analogy can be made to the Chevrolet small block engine. Born in 1955 - followed three years by the AR-15, well over 100,000,000 have been manufactured by Chevrolet plus countless more by third party manufacturers. Chevrolet last used the engine in new cars in 2003 yet they are still producing brand new copies today with no end in sight. The engine is just that good. It can be used in nearly anything that uses or could use an engine.
An engine never killed anyone, nor has an AR-15. Many, many tragedies have occurred with their use, but conversely many, many more good things have happened with them.
I have favored different sides of the gun control issue at different times, but I'll stand with the 'gun nuts' in the face of the 'gun control nuts'. I fear the threat of tyranny more than anything else. If this nation of ours is free, a primary reason it is is due to the 2nd amendment.http://usat.ly/1QptXEd
